Chapter 1499: The Scars Of The Battle
All twenty Empty Sky Sect disciples rushed towards Su Mo at once as everyone who saw the scene held their breaths.
Among these twenty Empty Sky Sect disciples were seven Rank 1 Martial Honorables. If they were to attack all at once with Wu Ren, Su Mo would definitely lose.
In actual fact, the crowd wasn’t surprised by this event.
That was because Su Mo had not started off challenging Wu Ren. Instead, he was fighting the entire group of Empty Sky Sect disciples in order to obtain the priority rights to hunt the demonic creatures. It only made sense for the entire group to fight against Su Mo.
Lyu Gang’s face instantly changed when he saw this and, without hesitation, he flew upwards. As a fellow True Path Sect disciple, he would naturally help Su Mo fight against the group.
As the other five True Path Sect disciples saw this, their eyes sparkled but they did not make a move. In their opinion, it was better to stay on the ground and protect themselves.
If they flew up to help Su Mo and ended up being crushed by the group of Empty Sky Sect disciples, that would be pitiful.
Up in the air, Su Mo’s face darkened the moment he saw the group of Empty Sky Sect disciples rushing up to him. They wanted to fight with their numbers? Were they joking?
“Hmm?” Out of the corner of his eye, Su Mo saw Lyu Gang flying towards him and was mildly surprised. What was this guy trying to do?
“Su Mo, let’s fight together!” Lyu Gang yelled out.
Su Mo was taken aback by his words as he realised that Lyu Gang was trying to help him! That wasn’t what he had expected!
Right at that moment, the twenty Empty Sky Sect disciples were around three kilometers away from Su Mo and they began to attack.
In an instant, various types of light flashed in the air. Sword Qi, Fist Radiance, Sabre Radiance formed a large wave of attacks that rushed towards Su Mo.
The combined attacks of the twenty Empty Sky Sect disciples were terrifying as the auras of the wave stretched out a few kilometres wide. Massive forces shook the air and everything within a ten kilometer radiance caved in.
“Su Mo, hurry, dodge!” Lyu Gang yelled out anxiously. Goosebumps formed on his skin as he felt fear from the people’s attacks.
“Not needed!” Su Mo shook his head. Then, a large shadow rose behind his back and suddenly a large black void appeared in the air.
An invisible but strong devouring power poured out from the void, enveloping the entire area.
Su Mo had released the Devouring Fighting Soul and had pushed the devouring power to its maximum. The devouring ultimacy was also used to enhance the devouring power.
Boom boom boom!!!
Under the force of this devouring power, the weaker attacks of the twenty Empty Sky Sect disciples directly crumbled apart into streaks of aura.
Only the attacks by the Rank 1 Martial Honorables were able to withstand the devouring power and did not self-destruct.
However, the devouring power was too strong and the attacks changed their course, flying directly into the devouring void.
The wave of aura in the sky followed by the seven strong attacks by the Martial Honorables were instantly sucked into the void, disappearing into thin air.
“How is that possible?”
“What is that thing?”
The Empty Sky Sect disciples were stunned by what they were seeing. As though they had seen a ghost, their eyes widened with fear.
The combined attacks of twenty people were actually devoured by the black void. What was that void? A Fighting Soul?
What made them even more surprised was that their bodies were out of control. The Dark Force within them spun uncontrollably and their lifeblood was in a state of turmoil. Without any warning, their bodies flew towards the black void.
The group of Empty Sky Sect disciples were stunned and they desperately struggled against the pulling force of the devouring power.
Even the injured Wu Ren, who was further off, was startled. His body also flew uncontrollably towards the void.
However, Wu Ren was strong and, even with his injuries, he could withstand the devouring power. He immediately stopped his body and retreated backward.
Everyone watching the scene was stunned and their mouths fell open in surprise as they stared in disbelief at the large Devouring Fighting Soul.
What in the world was this Fighting Soul? It had devoured all the attacks in one go!
Lyu Gang was also stunned and he stopped himself and stared blankly at the scene in front of him.
At that moment, Su Mo attacked again. With a mental thought, the dispersed Ten Direction Natal Spiritual Sword Snake Array merged together and sped through the air. Its target was the twenty Empty Sky Sect disciples.
These twenty Empty Sky Sect disciples, including the Rank 1 Martial Honorable were all surrounded by the devouring power. As the Dark Force within their bodies surged uncontrollably, they felt as though their bodies were tied up and their strengths were being sucked away from them. They had no way to defend themselves against the Ten Direction Natal Spiritual Sword Snake Array.
Ah ah ah!!!
The Ten Direction Natal Spiritual Sword Snake Array flickered continuously as it rushed towards the crowd, screams pierced the air as pools of blood burst out from the sky like blooming flowers.
Then, the twenty Empty Sky Sect disciples were pierced by the swords. Every one of them had a minimum of two swords piercing their bodies.
With that, Su Mo immediately stopped his attack and he retrieved all his Spiritual Swords and the Devouring Fighting Soul.
Although he would not kill the men, he would not let them off easily. Under his control, the residual Sword Qi of the Natal Spiritual Swords pierced through the bodies of the disciples.
“How could this be?”
Wu Ren, who was around ten kilometres away, wore a dark look as he saw the combined attacks of the twenty disciples being stopped.
What Fighting Soul was Su Mo’s Fighting Soul? Why was it so terrifying? How could it devour the attacks?
“I am giving you three breaths of time, I do not wish to see any of you here. Get the hell away from this place!” Su Mo glared at the group of Empty Sky Sect disciples and yelled loudly, his deep voice rolling out like thunder.
As soon as the group of disciples heard Su Mo words, they whipped around and flew off into the distance, just like dogs running with their tails between their legs.
In the blink of an eye, the twenty disciples had disappeared into the distance and only Wu Ren stood blankly on the spot.
“You still want to fight me?” Su Mo’s eyes fell upon Wu Ren as a cold glare flashed over his face. If Wu Ren wasn’t satisfied with the result of their battle, Su Mo wouldn’t mind killing him.
“I…!” Wu Ren was at a loss for words as his face twisted and contorted with emotion.
“Su Mo, wait and see what happens!”
Finally, Wu Ren threw down a vicious sentence and limped away.
He had no choice but to retreat. Since he had sustained a heavy injury, he would be no match for Su Mo anymore. If he continued fighting, he would be reduced to an even more pitiful state.
As the crowd saw the Empty Sky Sect disciples leave, they slowly regained their senses.
What a miracle!
This really was a miracle of a battle!
Su Mo, a Rank 9 Martial Emperor, had managed to defeat all twenty Empty Sky Sect disciples. Among them was a pro-disciple and seven Martial Honorables. What a terrifying amount of strength!
Before Su Mo had started his counter attack, the expectations of what the outcome would be were completely different.
